We recommend rebooting your phone after purchase. Some of our testers have told us that the app locks up on making a set until they rebooted their phone. GoTrapping! is an app designed to support the recording and analysis of trapping data. The app allows the trapper to record set type and location and catches made at those sets. Set types, traps, lures, and baits can be added or deleted as needed. Targeted species can also be added and deleted. The app provides the ability to analyze set performance in a variety of ways so that the user can determine the best sets to make for targeted species as well as have a record of catches and sets.
The app is intended to be used in the field so that location can be automatically captured through the devices GPS. When a catch is made, if the app is opened at the catch site, it will also automatically identify the set using the GPS so that data can be recorded quickly and accurately.
The trapper can use the app to assist with inventory of traps by type and size.
The app is able to customized in regards to trap set names, trap type names, lures and baits. We have entered some very common traps and sizes, as well as some baits and lures, but you can add and delete so you can use your favorite names or brands.
You can set the trap information from the comfort of your living room, by using the map page. Simply zoom in on the map until you see the location for the trap, tap the screen, and then enter the information for your trap. This way you don't have to worry about losing your phone in the swamp!
The app allows you to post traps and catches to Facebook. You can post pictures as well as the trap information. Though you must have the Facebook app installed on your device for this to work.
